Interdisciplinary Aspects of IT Security

It is increasingly becoming clear that IT security raises a significant number of legal, linguistic, psychological, sociological and economic questions.

This is why at the HGI researchers from technological and engineering fields and mathematics collaborate closely with researchers from law, linguistics, psychology, sociology and economics. These teams conduct joint research, for example, on societal changes in the wake of Edward Snowden’s revelations and hackers’ learning habits and styles.
